Satya Nadella emphasizes commitment to gaming in earnings calls, teases xCloud public trial
The gaming division is growing rapidly.
Yesterday, Microsoft revealed that Xbox Live grew to 64 million active users over the last fiscal quarter. The gaming division is going strong, as its revenue grew by eight percent to $4.23 billion. This can mostly be attributed to strong third-party sales.
Microsoft head Satya Nadella shared more details about the future of gaming at the company during the earnings call. He said the following.
It's great to see that Xbox Game Pass, Mixer, Minecraft are doing so well. We can't wait until xCloud public trials begin later this year. Hopefully they'll be announced at E3 2019. Microsoft is committed to gaming, and that show.
